    Turn off Instant 2D

    Bill Hopcraft

      There's no icon for this on my Sketch toolbar.  How can I turn it off?

          Command Manager > Sketch > Instant 2D




          You can add the iconby dragging to your sketch shortcuts...

            You can also search commands in the upper right corner

              I frequently encounter the same problem.  I hate it and always have it off, but yet it will somehow turn itself back on again...and when it does, the button is no longer in the Command Manager.  So I have to use the Search in the upper right corner, set it to "Commands" and type Instant2D and then click on it to turn it off.

                Gentlemen -

                Thanks for the replies.


                Kevin - In my sketch toolbar there are no icons to the right of "Rapid Sketch".

                Craig and Doug - If I search Commands, the response is "The Instant 2D command was not found in any menus, toolbars or in the Command Manager".

                  hmmm if that the case your SW is not complete you should asked your VAR to return some money because it is not complete jeje i'm joking,


                  Try to repair your SW program or reset registry but make sure to use your copywizard to save your setting just in case, and when you use reset registry rename your registry don't delete it so that you will have a background just in case again

                    It's one of those features which begs the question.. why?...   (it makes me redneck crazy, I either want a plastic squirt gun to shot it or whack a mole it!...)

                        I like it.  I'll admit it's not life-changing, but I keep it turned on.  It lets me use the same workflow (single-click and type) to edit dimensions in an active sketch that I use to edit feature dimensions without opening the feature.  It required a minor change to how I delete dimensions, but making that adjustment wasn't a big deal.

                        Thank you for posting this.  I just upgraded from 2015 to 2017, and the "one click activation: of a dialog was horrible.  Do the developers actually test software on real tasks before the put this crap in?  They seriously think one click vs two is going to save a meaningful amount of time.  In the real world, people move, delete, and name dimensions more often than they change the value.  This so called enhancement slowed down these more common actions dramatically.  Thankfully this junk could be turned off.
